Thank you again for your loyalty and patience with me over the years.
I am once again going to take a temporary pause from blogging. Last time it was because I was in the hospital for a month.
This time a family member was taken to the hospital and much of my time has been spent there.
Also I started a new class for my master's degree which requires as part of my grade to summarize 90 minute lecture/discussions in addition to the regular reading and response papers. This also includes a major research paper.
Besides this I have been given 2 whole new courses to teach this year and a great deal of my time has been going to lesson planning.
On top of that, I am directing a Shakespeare play that opens in less than two months.
Finally, I am working on a special project with a co-worker that is eating up a great deal of time as well.
I'm hoping to get ahead of my graduate work and lesson planning, which will give me some breathing room.
Please continue to keep my family member in your prayers for a complete recovery, but it may take several weeks/months.
I promise I will be back to blogging as soon as I can. This blog and your encouraging words have meant so much to me.
